Bryant Conference Center
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Dr. Dosal is the Vice President for Student Affairs & Student Success at the University of South Florida. In his role, Dr. Dosal is responsible for coordinating the university-wide student success initiative, a strategic campaign to raise retention and graduation rates, boost student satisfaction, minimize financial indebtedness, and prepare all students for success in their careers or graduate and professional schools.
Thanks to a collaborative "movement" involving all colleges and units, USF has made remarkable gains in undergraduate student success, raising the six-year graduation rate from 51% to nearly 70% while also eliminating the achievement gap by race, ethnicity, and socio-economic status. To advance the USF's student success initiative even further, Dr. Dosal is forging a new team that touches on all aspects of the student experience, including Enrollment Planning and Management, Undergraduate Studies, Dean of Students, Housing and Residential Education, Health and Wellness, and Career Services.
